UOC Peacekeeper Uniform

The uniforms of the United Outer Colonies Peacekeeping Forces were designed at the request of Prime Minister Tange-Katsura Ayana after the practical design of protective motorcycle riding leathers. It was felt that the need for a uniform that offered the peacekeepers the most protection available to them by using a combination of protective materials would better suit their needs in a peacekeeping role than the traditional cloth uniforms or even the newer energy dispersing panel variants of the Star Army of Yamatai uniforms that the former members of the Fifth Expeditionary fleet were used to.

It was argued that while the old uniforms were comfortable and attractive, that skirts didn't offer the same leg protection of pants in a potential hostile situation. And that while the colored panel variants were also very attractive, it would be most cost effective to simply give everyone the same uniform regardless of job specialization. With these things in mind, the Peacekeeper uniforms were designed with the intention of wearer protection, functionality, and color uniformity making the uniform also effectively unisex.

It is also interesting to note that before the succession of the United Outer Colonies in YE 30, the (then) Fifth Expeditionary fleet had a security organization, called the Bakafu Security and Intelligence Authority, within their ranks serving the now defunct, Motoyoshi Bakafu which were nicknamed the “black coats”, which utilized a black variant of the Star Army of Yamatai uniform.
